Finding Your Feet
The Finding Your Feet course is a free two day workshop and discussion session which offers practical and emotional support for people adjusting to sight loss and those close. It shares many of the themes discussed on our Living with Sight Loss course but goes into more detail.
As with Living with Sight Loss, each course is tailored to the needs of the attendees, so every course may offer something different and can include:
- Assistive Technology
- Eye Health
- Socialising and sharing experiences
- Safety in the home
- Reading and writing
- Aids for daily living
- Emotional wellbeing
- Overcoming barriers to mobility
- Welfare rights
- Information on other sources of help
The course is particularly aimed at people who have lost confidence or are anxious that they will lose their independence as a result of their sight loss. This course is one of several support activities that we are delivering as part of our progress towards employment project.
